Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney are an indie rock trio from Olympia, Washington influenced by the riot grrrl[?] movement of the 1990s. The band's name derives from exit 105 ("Sleater-Kinney road") on the Interstate 5 expressway ("I-5") between Seattle and Portland.

The long-time critical darlings emerged from a series of other bands with their self-titled debut in 1995, and continued with more acclaimed albums like Call the Doctor[?] (1996) and Dig Me Out[?] (1997). The next few albums have pushed the band towards mainstream listeners, culminating in 2002's One Beat[?]. The band, however, has remained fiercely faithful to their indie rock and feminist roots.
